Looks like we have four volunteers:

* Ben Turner (primary GlusterFS perf tuning guy)
* Jeff Darcy (greybeard GlusterFS developer and scalability expert)
* Josh Boon (experienced GlusterFS guy - Ubuntu focused)
* Nico Schottelius (newer GlusterFS guy - familiar with Ubuntu/CentOS)

This sounds like a fairly good mix, so lets go with that.

Ben and Jeff, does it make sense for you two to do the leading, with
Josh and Nico involved and learning/assisting/idea-generation/stuff as

In our initial discussion, Jesse mentioned the required output is
Markdown + diagrams, and he'll get the Rackspace design people to
make things *look awesome*.  Guessing they'll redo the diagrams for
prettiness then, so any we output just need to be functional to
convey info?

Jesse, we're pretty maxxed out in our VM's atm (over the sponsorship
monthly budget).  Are you able to setup something just for this
effort, or is there a better way, or ? :)
